You might know the sunny Isle of Wight for its beautiful beaches and seaside attractions, but this place is also home to some wonderful woodlands.

Firestone Copse is one such forest, a great stretch of wood that’s home to many species of trees and some fantastic views of the Old Mill Pond.

A wonderful woodland in Wight

Firestone Copse is the perfect place to escape into nature.

As you enter the vast forest, look out for dens that people have built out of branches and twigs - or maybe make one of your own!

The trail passes by the Old Mill Pond, a beautiful spot that’s a favourite haunt for holiday-goers where you’ll be able to unwind.

As you explore the woods, you’ll be surrounded by many different kinds of trees.

There are classic English varieties like the English oak and ash, as well as hazel, cedar and Scots pine trees. It’s a wonderfully mixed woodland.

Accommodating and accessible

The best part about the trails around Firestone Copse is that they can be enjoyed by anyone.

Suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, you can bring the whole family (including the dogs!) to this spot.

There are even picnic benches and a coffee van by the car park, so you can recharge and warm up with a nice hot brew after your lovely walk.

If you’re looking for somewhere to grab dinner or a bed for the night, you’re in luck, because Firestone Copse is also within easy walking distance of villages like Wootton Bridge and Havenstreet, and is just a stone’s throw away from the town of Ryde.

Rest assured: you won’t be left wanting for the comforts of civilisation after you finish your escape into nature.

Firestone Copse really is an ideal place to unwind and immerse yourself in the natural world.

With a diverse woodland that encircles a lovely pond, it’s a great little forest that isn’t too far off the beaten track.
